Outrageous Development Proposals Threaten Grand Canyon

Making 'America's Cathedral' more accessible to tourists is a bad idea. Here's why

Kevin Fadarko for The New York Times: FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — WHEN I worked as a white-water guide at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, I was often struck by how many passengers concluded their odyssey through the most iconic landscape in the United States by invoking the very same epiphany. At the end of each two-week, 277-mile journey down the Colorado River, someone would often come up to me......read more

An appropriately hallucinogenic video for the latest from Psychic Ills

One Track Mind, the latest offering Brooklyn's Psychic Ills, just dropped on Sacred Bones, and we have a video to go with it. The clip for album standout "One More Time" is appropriately psychedelic, with enough washed out visuals to ignite an acid flashback. While the album itself actually features more straight ahead rock 'n' roll than psych jams, this video keeps the freak dream alive.......read more

The Obama administration has proposed a new rule that would give the federal government regulatory authority over millions of acres of wetlands and about 2 million miles of streams.

The Senate Finance Committee proposed on Wednesday an overhaul of clean energy tax credits, many of them set to expire at the end of the year. The draft, presented by Committee Chair Sen.

The plan would create two broader......read more

Proposed installation pits Christo and Jeanne-Claude against Colorado conservationists

What happens when an artist decides to hang six miles of fabric over a river in South Central Colorado? Well, that depends what side of the river you are on. If you're on the side of art and conceptual installation, a project of this nature is like being a kid on Christmas morning. If, on the other hand, you're on the side of nature conservancy, it might be an act akin to Sinead O’Connor......read more

Blossoming sculpture would protect important museum from scorching solar glare

Since opening in 2003, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas has catalyzed the development of a new neighbourhood in the city. But one of the buildings that the museum helped attract to the area has become its biggest threat. Museum Tower, a 42-story condo high-rise, is clad in a glassy exterior that reflects sunlight onto the Nasher property, killing plants and ruining art. The tower is the......read more

Young Galaxy, "Phantoms"

Ghost-themed vid offers up some seasonally appropriate spookiness

Just in time for Halloween, Montreal band Young Galaxy release this new vid for "Phantoms" off their latest LP, Shapeshifting. The clip fregoes the animated approach in favor of a live action tale involving two ghosts (of the bedsheet variety) haunting a forest and generally acting goth'y. Hazy lighting and spectral cinematography give this one a strange and spooky vibe. ...read more
